  • Description

    This special issue addresses Medicare’s historical roots as a political strategy
    on the path to national health insurance; the legacies of the 2003 Medicare
    Modernization Act; and the movement within the program toward pay-for performance. The issue also offers three perspectives on how Medicare should
    move forward in an environment that emphasizes health care competition.

    Contributors include Lawrence D. Brown, John H. Cawley, Jacob S. Hacker,
    Lawrence R. Jacobs, Katharina Janus, Theodore Marmor, Jonathan Oberlander,
    Mark Schlesinger, Joseph White, and Andrew B. Whitford.
